It's Amazing What You Can Create. . .

I have to admit, it's been awhile since Jason and I had some time to devote to coming up with creative ideas (or even finding pieces for that matter!) Now that June has passed us and we were able to take a week "off" we feel back to normal. We didn't waste any time this weekend: estate sales on Saturday morning and antique stores in the evening. On Sunday we were up and out the door by 5:45am so we can hit two of our favorite flea markets, some stores in Adamstown and even made a table delivery to Philly. It was quite the day in so many ways, but my favorite part of this weekend was when we did made some ground breaking discoveries. 
About a week ago we were approached about bistro tables for an upcoming event. No, we don't have bistro tables BUT if you know me at all by now you know that I never like to say no, whether it's to a client or to a challenge. The fact that Jason has 10 more tables to go for the end of July he didn't even want to give this one a thought but the more he says no the more I want to move forward... yeah I know, poor Jason. So I started to secretly plan for these tables in my head. Spools were part of the creation but I just didn't have the legs down yet. Well thanks to the good ol' flea market this problem was solved! Jason and I stumbled upon this amazing booth and found a bucket full of metal springs from a tractor. Instantly we both knew what they should be used for and I came home on Sunday with that grin on my face that said "I told you so"

  1. Yes, I love it when everything finally comes together! That's why it's so hard for people like us to throw things away...we just know it will come in handy eventually!

    It looks like these are going to be another lovely addition to your inventory! Great job Maggie and Jason!
